After realizing the price of retrofitting a navi, i considered the dynavin. From the reviews ive read, its hit or miss. And its also a pain in the ass once youre modifying intricate systems w/non-oem parts.

I've decided on getting either an ipad or ipad mini and a mount and am going to use that as my entertainment system/center. Ive got netflix and spotify on there and there are plenty of navi apps to give you turn by turn directions and its all touch screen.

Win/win
Ive had both dynavin d90 and d99. Both worked great for me. I upgraded to the D99 because I wanted the android interface that it came with.

Do this:

I used a Simpson Strong Tie (Home Depot) instead of the bracket that was shown.

Use the following quick release to remove the tablet:

Or go with the quick release and a Kuda mount.
ProClip also makes a swivel and I was thinking of that to add tilt swivel capability.

Definitely the quick release system.

Also get CoPilot for the Nexus 7

I'll post pics later.
